Hi everybody!

I've been in Arnhem at FIGZ today and to all of you who didn't come (or had a good excuse not to do so ;-)) - you missed a great day together with them miniature enthusiasts.

But no worry, here are the photos...

My evergrowing army

Lots of romans...

...and lots of Macedons

Massive bulk of roman soldiers

But beware...

...because the Asterix' gauls are just on the opposite table!

Jan's sandbox (the biggest sandbox of the show - yes, it's real sand)

Somewhat lousy painting from a lousy painter (just kidding - he knows how I mean it ;-))


My personal favourite - you remember these cheap one-coloured plastic indians from your childhood? 


Wonder if he finds some gold

Wonder if he has just taken the gold away. :-)

French incoming!

Impressive ruin.


And Russians all over the place

Clear message: butts up!

Waterloo wasn't only all about Hougoumont!

This is the wargamers' and shop owners' hall - more visitors came later on.

One of the wargamer cities - with a little specialty just because...

...the buildings are 3D-prints of really great quality.

Wargamers in action - roll the dice for 'em Frenchies, boy!

Dunno whether a '1' is good or bad for these chaps...

River boat full of beer-barians.

Or more cultivated - a cup of tea?

Multi-figure contest winner - the best idea: a Bennos' forum globe with one

figure for every land where members of Bennos' figure forum come from.

Group build: road to Arnhem. With contributions from all over the world

Each part representing a scene that could have taken place near Arnhem.

For example: early medieval

...even Roman...

Knights and ladies...

And foreign troops heading for France

Dutch standing guard

And foreign troops heading the other way 'round.

Oh no! That lion escaped from Burger's Zoo!

And peace, bro!

Don't forget - come to FIGZ!

You can see barbarian villages there

And marvellous trees.

Interesting vignettes and dioramas

And even buy your own Frederic the Great

Just avoid standing around

And avoid open gates!

  2. Ich glaube ich muss unbedingt zum Figs. Your ever growing army looks superb.
